To : all
_________________________________________________________________________
Outside of Cityguard, a small crowd gathers as the Proconsul steps from the
headquarters of the Queen's Own, lifting a hand for attention. Castruccio
dul Acrisini waits a moment for those about to quiet, then speaks:

"People of Lithmore. Now is a time for us all to clamour for unity, and to
look forward to the future under the rule of our Queen Celeste, first of her
name. Long has the office of Seneschal been considered a joke, or been
empty, or used by criminals and mages to line their pockets and work ill upon
us all. I would see that end. As Proconsul of Lithmore, I am a man of the
law. As a leader in the Reeves, I have worked with many leaders to achieve
my goals, both great and small. As a nobleman, I have worked with the
Troubadours to bring back traditions such as the Great Hunt, inspiring morale
during the recent crisis. If my bid is successful, I would use my experience
to continue working with the leaders of the city. To repair the roads, to
safeguard our children, to enforce law and order, to work with the guilds and
nobility of the city to provide prosperity." A brief pause. "Lord bless."
With that, he abruptly turns back to head inside once more.

_________________________________________________________________________
Word circulates among the capitol's higher tiers that, perhaps
unsurprisingly, the Marquessa of Avonna has instructed her Court to pledge
her March's support to the son of Viceroy Mario dul Acrisini of the Colonial
Territories, Lord Castruccio, in his bid for the lofty title of Seneschal.
While none were shocked to hear that Her Ladyship had come out in support of
her betrothed, the announcement aroused some talk about the betrothal itself.
Some at the Court Malenta murmur that in this political climate a highborn
Lithmorran ought be mingling blood with only Lithmorran nobility, while
others point out the diplomatic statement made by pairing Lithmore with
Vavard.

In subject of: Giles ab Leidsfried Makes His Bid Known
Date : Wed Jul 25 11:03:46 2018
Expires : Mon Apr 19 11:03:55 2021
To : all
_________________________________________________________________________
The Baron of Perche, Giles ab Leidsfried, has apparently decided to run for
seneschal. He made that known in front of the Bluebird, which might seem
like a curious choice. However, as he pointed out, he does have a room
there, so it was a convenient choice. The speech was a relatively brief
one.

"All -- I've decided to run not because I have anything against the
Proconsul; in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Really, I
barely know the man, but I have heard nothing but good things.

I am running because I think a little choice is a good thing. Furthermore, I
think I could do a very good job. All I really know how to do, frankly, is
manage a land, and I do it well. Perche is different than Lithmore City,
true, but I like to think that most of us are -- deep down -- pretty much the
same. I'm like many of you. I may have a title, true, but I'm also a
dedicated spouse, a proud parent, and a sibling to two remarkable people I
wish I could be a little more like.

Those who know me know that I initially came to this city to support Lord
Beaufort. However, after listening to several people who I am now quite fond
of, I changed my mind. Perche went for the Queen, Lord bless her, and I am
proud of my decision. I listened, and I realized she would be better for the
people.

I am not a politician. If you want a politician for your own reasons, that's
fine. I am not your man. If you want a hard-worker who will take the job
seriously, though, I just might be. I am happiest when, at the end of a long
day, I reflect on it and say that I did a good, honest day's work. I spend
my evenings with my wife and family, and then I get up and put in another
day. That's how things are done in Perche, and I imagine that's how things
are done in most households in this fair city.

I am not going to pretend I haven't been extraordinarily blessed. I have.
The Lord has been very good to me, and I adore my life. Maybe, though, just
maybe, I can use what I have learned running a really great barony to improve
what is already a tremendous city full of tremendous people.

Lord's blessings on you all, and thank you for your consideration. I have to
go prepare for my lovely wife's visit now, but I will be around in the coming
days if you have any questions. Don't be shy."

With that, the baron stepped back into the Bluebird and, so the staff could
confirm, returned to his inn room.

_________________________________________________________________________
The Baron of Perche, Giles ab Leidsfried, has decided to remove himself from
the race for Seneschal. He gave a very brief speech, outside of the
Bluebird, regarding his decision.

"After prayer, I decided it was not in the best interest of my barony to
run," he began. "I know how important the city is to this kingdom, but
Perche is important, too. My family is, also, very important. The potential
strain on my marriage and any harm to my family is not worth power or glory.
I will be in town for a couple of months, though as my wife has decided to
enjoy a holiday while my sister is trained to manage a barony and my son is
visiting with his maternal grandparents. To those I have befriended, this
isn't a goodbye.

In fact, my wife surprised me by arriving early due to a business deal going
more smoothly than anticipated, so I'll be throwing a very informal party at
the Queen's within the next few days. Messengers will be sent. All are
welcome, of course, but no one needs to attend obviously. Lord bless."

_________________________________________________________________________
An older woman, some might recognise her as the former Queen's royal
physician, and the steward of the Vavardi party Alfred dul Coste, are marched
out in chains from Ahalin Tower to a crowd gathered by heralds in the early
morning. The Proconsul marches after them, along with a small group of
Reeves. As the executioner places ropes around their necks at the gallows,
Castruccio steps forward to deliver a sentence.

"These two stand before you accused of treason, in aiding the poisoning and
murder of our beloved and late Queen. As the two in charge of the health of
the Queen and the safety of the food and drink, they were uniquely in place
to aid this crime. After rigid interrogation, however, the Crown has found
them innocent of treasonous intent, and guilty only of ineptitude so vast it
resulted in the death of the Queen. Therefore, mercy will be granted, and
they will only be hanged to death for aiding the act regicide through gross
negligence. Lord have mercy on their souls."

The ropes are tightened and feet are kicked out from under the Lithmorran and
the Vavardi. The bodies twitch as the observing crowd throws tomatoes,
fruit, and the occasional rock, with no one hastening their end. After their
souls depart, Reeves disperse the crowds and take down the bodies.

_________________________________________________________________________
An Ostentatious Influence Event

As the 378 Seneschal race continues to cycle word around the streets of
Lithmore, patients present and former of the Madison Hospital spread their
support of the present Prime Medicus for the position. They speak of the
shining nature of the Health and well-being in the city, compared to the Law
and Order spoken of by the present Lord Proconsul. Some tell cases or
stories where the Prime Medicus had helped them, leaving a bit of a
bittersweet air with the consideration of the kingdom's best Doctor
potentially moving on to a different appointment.

A Trivial Influence Event

Sitting in the Lounge of the Merchants' Guild, reading out of a book, and
apparently drinking tea and discussing the days politics, Magnate Miguello le
fortino, spoke with the apprentices and Journeyman with him, saying, "In
regards to the bid for Seneshal, I believe The Prime Medicus has shown
herself to be both competent, and a strong supporter of the city, working
well with others, seeing passed both class and race as well as addressing the
key matters of the city. Truly, She has the experiences, has seen hardships,
both in her life, as well in the lives of others and if there was anyone more
suitable, I believe it would be her for certain."

_________________________________________________________________________
The Proconsul of the Duchy of Lithmore steps out of Cityguard to briefly
address a gathered crowd.

"People of Lithmore. After an extensive conversation with Prime Medicus
Astartes, it is my belief she will hold the position of Seneschal well, and
do her duty as befits a servant of the Crown. Further, were I to overcome
her in a last ditch effort of influence, I would leave the Queen's Own Guard
without a Proconsul in a time where rigid adherence to law is needed more
than ever. I am pleased to withdraw my bid for Seneschal. Lord Bless."

With that, he turns back to head to Cityguard, just as abruptly as one might expect.
